The exhibit features the diaries of five women--four from the Middle East (Iran, Egypt, Jordan and the West Banc)-- and one by Hird, who is from Vermont. The women wrote on the same day, once a month, for a year. They kept detailed notes on their day. Then Hird illustrated the diaries.
The idea behind this is to give the audience an intimate look at the daily lives of women from different cultures. Issues such as religion, gender, personal identity and cultural differences are all viewed through the prism of these diaries.
